Luciana Brito Galeria opens its new headquarters
After 15 years with its space at Vila Olímpia, São Paulo, Luciana Brito Galeria relocates to a house designed by architect Rino Levi with landscaping by Burle Marx, at Jardim Europa neighborhood in São Paulo.
More than a mere relocation, the change represents a new phase for the gallery’s program. The white cube model of its current exhibition space is left behind to give room to a new project in which the modernist architecture heritage and urbanist issues are integrated to the contemporary visual production, in a search for new ways to perceive and show art, recovering modern precepts of integration between art and life. Rino Levi’s architecture simultaneously shelters Luciana Brito Galeria’s collection and integrates it, becoming a work of art in permanent exhibition.
The modernist house is located at Av. Nove de Julho, Jardim Europa district: the Castor Delgado Perez Residence, a project by architect Rino Levi (São Paulo, SP, 1901 – Lençóis, BA, 1965) with landscape design by Burle Marx (São Paulo, SP, 1909 – Rio de Janeiro, RJ, 1994). Listed as a cultural heritage, the building can’t suffer any structural changes. As the Castor Delgado Perez Residence will be a central element of the gallery’s new phase, the new space will also include a library about Rino Levi, where books, publications and sorted documents about the architect and the house will be available for free consultation.
Visiting hours: Tuesday to Friday, from 10am to 7pm
Saturday, from 11am to 6pm
